Irritable Bowel Syndrome Can also Affect Our Furry Friends

Saturday, November 3, 2018
posted by Jim Murphy

Our dogs have a little bit of diarrhea and vomiting from time to time. As long as this is just occasional, short term stomach trouble, we usually don’t worry. Long term episodes of vomiting and diarrhea may be signs of irritable bowel syndrome.  If your dog is diagnosed with I.B.S., your veterinarian may suggest a temporary change of diet.  You could be told to substitute with bland foods such as steamed rice or pasta. Sometimes increased fiber in the diet or pro biotic supplements will help.  Remember, irritable bowel is a syndrome, not a specific disease. Intolerance to certain foods can cause irritation as can stress. You and your veterinarian must work to find the cause and the solution. Your dog will thank you both!

Remember, your pets count!
